If you have a “Black” name, Raven-Symoné will not hire you … EVER. The View cohost made that clear on the ABC program Friday morning while discussing a recent study by Journal of Evolution and Human Behavior. That study revealed that Americans make racist assumptions based on people’s names.

“Just to bring it back, can we take back ‘racist’ and say ‘discriminatory,’ because I think that’s a better word. And I am very discriminatory against words like the ones that they were saying in the video. I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. It’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you.”

As you can imagine, Black Twitter was having none of what Miss Symone was talking about.

We have to agree, Raven-Symoné is some kind of name isn’t it? That being said, do you agree with the former child star or would you hire someone named Watermelondrea?
